A process and apparatus for rapidly carbonating water for use in applications such as a post-mix beverage dispenser by injecting carbon dioxide under pressure beneath the water in a pressure vessel, causing the water to swirl in a circular turbulent mixing motion while restrictively venting some of the carbon dioxide from the pressure vessel for a sufficient amount of time to carbonate the water, then sealing the pressure vessel to the atmosphere and continuing to inject carbon dioxide under pressure into the pressure vessel to prevent dissolved carbon d...
A process for rapidly carbonating water comprising the steps of: (A) providing a pressure vessel; (B) venting the interior of the pressure vessel to the atmosphere; (C) at least partially filling the vessel with water by injecting the water into the vessel through an orifice configuration positioned to create a circular swirling flow of water within the vessel as it is being filled; (D) injecting carbon dioxide at a first pressure into the water with the pressure vessel and simultaneously restrictively venting the interior of the pressure vessel for a sp...
